(( Patterns )) How to tie #72697 - Double Diamonds
This tutorial is dedicated to pattern #72697.
This is the bracelet I like to call Double Diamonds. It's basically the simple diamond bracelet with two layers. I didn't invent this pattern but there isn't a tutorial for it on this site so I decided to make one.
Materials and Set Up
You need 16 strings. I cut mine about a meter and 30 inches long. I then fold it in half. It sounds like a lot but I just want to make sure that I don't run out of string. You also need four colors.
Example:white, blue, black, and red (ABCD).
Set Up: AABBCCDDD
Step by Step
Do a chevron with your A's (white for me)
Do a second chevron with your next A's
Separate the colors on the right from the colors on the left. Take all of your whites and put them on the left side. Put all of your strings on the left to the side ( you won't be using them right now)
Take your first string on your right (String B) and do backward knots on all of the strings on that side. Now put that string a side ( you won't be using it for now)
Take your next string (B) and do the same thing not knotting over the B string you just used
Repeat this step until you are done knotting with the strings on the right side
Do the same on the left side but with forward knots
Do an inverted chevron with your A strings closest to the outside of the bracelet.
Do another chevron with the next A strings
Put your A strings a side (You won't be using them right now)
Do another inverted chevron with your B string. Don't knot over your A strings. Put it a side ( you won't be using it right now)
Do yet another inverted chevron with your second B string and don't knot over your A strings and your first B string. Put it a side ( you won't be using it right now)
Keep doing inversed chevrons ( not knotting over the string you have already used) until you have used all of your strings
Do a regular chevron with your A strings closest to the center of the bracelet
Do another chevron to finish off the pattern
